I dunno How great of a deal you guys think your gonna get with oil and filters... unless maybe your talking about the XPS garbage. Oil is something that unless you all want your sepaate 50 gallon drum of it, you probably would be better to each buy a case of 12 from somewhere.
xrider, just curious why you say the xps is garbage? It seems pretty bad that they call it summer grade (really you can't put 5W-40) and use it for all their vehicles, but i have no reason to say it is garbage.
What oil do you recommend?
I finally found the number for the oil filter: 420256455
I'm not sure if we could really get much of a deal, but it never hurts to ask.
I just am not a fan of the XPS stuff quad racer. It is all preference, but when ya change your oil with that stuff in it after warming it up just a bit, it pours out like water. . . not very viscouse especially for MX riding which I do.
Another reason why I'm not crazy about it is cuz Can-am recomends that you use the XPS stuff... but also recoment fully synthetic, which the XPS summer is not. . It specifically say Synthetic blend, meaning semi synthetic.
The oil I am using is semi synthetic as well as that apparently is better for the clutches. I have been using Belray's ATV racing 10w 40 semi synthetic oil in all my race quads, which is designed specifically for High abuse ATV use... Where as XPS oil is more of a general oil which BRP uses in its atv's watercraft, and Can-am spyder.
If you are riding hard, my experience has showed that thinner oil isn't such a great idea. Driver 311 even runs heavier oil than me... He swears by Rotella 15w 40 or 50 I believe. Its completely preference but I can't justify spending 7 bucks a litre more for an inferior oil.
